Estrogen and progesterone receptor expression in HPV-positive and HPV-negative cervical carcinomas.
Assessment of the expression of estrogen receptor α (ERα) and progesterone receptor (PR) in archived tissue blocks of squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix and to ascertain whether expression of these receptors is associated with the presence of HPV DNA revealed decreased to undetectable levels.
Plant antimicrobial peptides
Plant antimicrobial peptides have activities towards phytopathogens, as well as against bacteria pathogenic to humans, and are considered as promising antibiotic compounds with important biotechnological applications.
Intratype HPV16 sequence variation within LCR of isolates from asymptomatic carriers and cervical cancers.
The results of the study show that there might be HPV16 variants of decreased oncogenic potential therefore infection with such variants can recede and so they may inflict viral activity.
HPV genotypes in the oral cavity/oropharynx of children and adolescents: cross-sectional survey in Poland
Findings presented herein, reveal a relatively low prevalance of oropharyngeal HPVs in Polish adolescents and fill an important gap in the knowledge of oral HPV infections of children above 10 years and adolescents.
Identification of an rRNA operon promoter from Zea mays chloroplasts which excludes the proximal tRNAValGAC from the primary transcript
The transcriptional start site of the rRNA operon from Zea mays chloroplasts has been identified by a combination of S1 mapping and Southern hybridization with in vitro capped chloroplast RNA as
Effect of lectin from Chelidonium majus L. on normal and cancer cells in culture.
The effect of lectin from Chelidonium majus L on normal and cancercells in culture in vitro is described and evident apoptosis lesions were observed in CHO cells and less well marked apoptotic lesions in R2C cells.
Epigenetic mechanisms in virus-induced tumorigenesis
This review summarizes the published information related to the interactions between viral proteins and epigenetic machinery which lead to alterations in the epigenetic landscape of the cell contributing to carcinogenesis.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) in upper genital tract carcinomas of women.
Using nucleic acid hybridization and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) HPV-DNA sequence was detected in endometrial and ovarian carcinomas and suggests that human papillomavirus can also be involved in carcinogenesis of the upper genital tract of women.
Search for cellular partners of human papillomavirus type 16 E2 protein
Using a yeast two-hybrid system, epithelial cellular proteins are identified that bind to the E2 protein of HPV16, a regulatory protein that seems to be essential for creating favourable conditions for establishment of infection and proper completion of the viral life cycle.
